Is fecit cui prodest: California wildfires map lines up with proposed high speed rail for California
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF., - November 15, 2018
Looking through the news about the most destructive fires all over the state of California, we noticed an interesting coincidence when discussing the wildfires... Of course it looks like a “conspiracy theory,” but still, we couldn’t pass it up.
Since the days of Roman law there was a principle of "Is fecit cui prodest" (Look who benefits). Since then, thousands of years have passed, and this question remains the first to be asked by criminologists investigating any crime.
Judge for yourselves. Basically all you have to do is search a California wildfires map in the last year or so and put the map of the proposed California high speed rail system continually being pushed by the far left government of California. What do you get if you place these images next to each other...?Well it just so happens that the California wildfires happen to all be located along the proposed lines of the California high speed rail project.
Does it look suspicious? Who benefits from this? Can it be beneficial for Democrats to push for "urban renewal" zones as a way of breaking the resistance of holdout landowners? Could it be beneficial to those who control this project to obtain a better prize?
By the way, the one-party state completely in the hands of the Democrats, a consortium whose lead firm is controlled by Richard Blum, husband of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, was awarded a nearly billion-dollar contract for the construction of the first phase of the so-called high-speed rail line to link San Francisco and Los Angeles. Those paying attention to the project call it the “half-fast” rail line because it will share trackage with conventional commuter rail trains in the sprawling Los Angeles and San Francisco areas, lowering its average speed to levels achieved by American railways a century ago.

The Perini-Zachary-Parsons bid was the lowest received from the five consortia participating in the bidding process, but “low” is a relative term. The firms bid $985,142,530 to build the wildly anticipated first section of high speed rail track that will tie the megopolis of Madera to the global finance center of Fresno. Do the division, and you find that the low bid came in at a mere $35 million per mile.
And that doesn’t include the cost of rolling stock (that’s engines and cars to the normal among us). Nor does it include the cost of electrifying the route. Does it at least include the cost of land acquisition? No, it does not.
As this fiasco progress, remember that this $35 million per mile represents the best California can do on the section of track the High on Crack Speed Rail Authority selected to go first because it will be the cheapest.
Do we have reason to accuse Democrats or respected businessmen of setting fires? Of course not. But we're not accusing. We are just trying to compare the facts and ask questions that we would very much like to find the answers to.
